Jewtopia tells the story of two 30 year old single men, Chris O'Connell and Adam Lipschitz. Chris, a gentile, wants to marry a Jewish girl so he'll never have to make another decision. Adam Lipschitz, a Jew, wants to marry a Jewish girl to please his family, but can't get a date to save his life. After meeting at a Jewish singles mixer, Adam and Chris form a secret pact. Chris promises that he will help Adam find the Jewish girl of his dreams and show him "Jewtopia", but only if Adam will help Chris shed his gentile-ness and bring him undercover into the Jewish world. Stereotypes collide, cultures clash and chaos ensues!

REVIEWS:

"UNSTOPPABLE! Fogel and Wolfson have created one of the biggest theatrical hits! – The New York Times

 "Hilarious! Raucous! Merciless! ...Bryan Fogel and Sam Wolfson know their territory well and assault it with unflagging comic energy! Enlisting Andy Fickman as director ensures an equal-opportunity satire...when Jewtopia hits its mark, which is frequently, it's outrageously funny!" - Los Angeles Times

"Entertaining!...Wild!...Raucous!...Wolfson and Fogel fill the stage with overwhelming energy...they come across as natural clowns, alternately vulnerable, charming and animated. Certain to hit home with all observers, whatever their religion!" - Variety

After a quarter century of Neil Simon and his imitators, the playwrights redeem the formula with edge! Displaying a commercial sensibility that is almost obscene, they combine the swaggering generation y, nailing two demographics at once! The result is irresistible The young authors play the parts with sassy abandon! The script throws every ingredient on hand into the comedic chicken soup!" - Time Out New York


Jewtopia premiered at the Coast Playhouse in Los Angeles, CA in May of 2003 under the direction of Andy Fickman.
